From the reviews:

"The aim of the present book is to present hyperbolic partial differential equations at an elementary level. … the novice might well be used to a more discursive style. … HypPDE is a very good book … the more experienced mathematician will also find a lot of good stuff in these pages, all presented well and cogently." (Michael Berg, The Mathematical Association of America, October, 2009)

“Any specification for the perfect mathematical monograph would doubtless exhibit self-contradiction. Where one reader requires copious details and examples, another wants a breathless flow. This terse volume on hyperbolic differential equations (which describe processes, such as wave propagation, where signals travel at finite speed) serves a … need. … Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections.” (D. V. Feldman, Choice, Vol. 47 (8), April, 2010)

“Provides an introduction to linear hyperbolic equations symmetric hyperbolic systems and conservation laws. … The presentation is clear and over 100 exercises are included … which guide the reader step by step through the proofs of theorems. … This book provides an excellent introduction to hyperbolicequations and conservation laws, and it can be recommended to anyone who wishes to study this fertile branch of partial differential equations.” (Alan Jeffrey, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2010 e)

“The book is useful to senior or graduated students as well as to researchers of other fields interested in hyperbolic partial differential equations. … The author often uses geometrical explanations of problems instead of tedious mathematical proofs. Some illustrative pictures would be desirable.” (Marie Kopáčková, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1178, 2010)

“This is a concise introduction to the main aspects of the theory of hyperbolic partial differential equations. … This work is highly recommended for a quick and smooth entry into this field of great current interest.” (M. Kunzinger, Monatshefte für Mathematik, Vol. 163 (1), May, 2011)
